The KittenCam is still up and running – it’s over to the right. Here’s today’s top story: After running wire on Saturday we drove to Kansas City for a Royals vs. Cardinals game on Sunday.
It was hot.
I don’t know how to stress that enough. It was hot. We had just come off of a sweaty work day where Lloyd baked in the attics and I felt sick just from having my head up in the attic to make sure he didn’t pass out. (Which is funny, because what was I going to do – drag him out? No, I would have cut a hole in the ceiling to let him drop down.)
We met up with the Kolliparas and Lloyd’s parents – all big Cardinals fans. I don’t know how Lloyd and his folks and Steph survived sitting in the sun for the whole game. I gave up after two innings and wandered around in the shaded part of the stadium, waiting for my soaked clothes to slowly dry off. I even bumped into an old CDC co-worker. He and his wife have a mixed marriage.
To make this more real for you, let’s have a sing-along. Cue the organ music.
Take me out to the furnace,
Take me out to the blaze.
Why are we watching these men play ball
When people are passing out against the walls?
It’s just sweat, sweat, sweat as we sit here,
I think that I have ‘steamed buns’.
‘Cause it’s 1-0-3 in the shade
And 1-10 in the sun.
